Honors and Scholars Enrichment Grants

Working toward the Honors and Scholars mission of providing students the ability to participate in opportunities that help create a holistic learning experience, the Honors and Scholars Center will award $100,000 annually in student enrichment grants thanks solely to donor contributions. The scholarship amount will range based on the student's proposals, with a maximum award of $3,000, and will be awarded through a competitive application process. 

Funds are available to undergraduate Honors and Scholars students of all majors and can be utilized for a variety of purposes, including, but not limited to research, creative work and study abroad. Applicants must be current, full-time undergraduate students, and be in good standing in the University Honors Program or an Ohio State Scholars Program. The project or experience must enhance a student's academic experience and learning and take place before they graduate. 

The experiences will need to highlight and include the Honors and Scholars G.O.A.L.S ,: Global Engagement, Original Inquiry, Academic Enrichment, Leadership Development and Service Immersion.

Autumn Enrichment Grant Competition


Applicants who are awarded an Enrichment Grant from the Autumn Competition will receive their funding by early December. Students are encouraged to apply during the Autumn Competition for projects taking place over winter break, through mid-spring semester (sometime in mid-March).

The Autumn and Spring Enrichment Grant Competitions are closed.

Spring Enrichment Grant Competition


Note: Students may only apply for one enrichment grant per academic year per individual proposal. Students who submit the same proposal for the same project for both the autumn and spring competitions will be denied.
